Q. How do I register with Honeycomb Jobs
Before registering as a candidate, we ask everyone to send through their CV either via email or applying directly for a job on the job vacancies page.
On receipt of your CV, a consultant will assess your skills and experience and if we believe we can assist you, we will call you to arrange an appointment for you to come in and register as a candidate with us. Please note that we receive a high volume of CVs on a daily basis so sadly we are not able to come back to all candidates.
Q. How long does registering take and will I need to bring anything with me?
One of our consultants will meet you for about 20 minutes to discuss your experience, skills and career aspirations. You may well be introduced to another consultant on your visit and any suitable opportunities will be run past you at this stage.
Please bring a Photo ID and utility bill with you to confirm address details with you as well as certificates of qualifications. These include secretarial diplomas and all educational qualifications – for example, GCSEs, O-Levels, A-Levels, and any degrees.
Q. What should I wear to a registration?
It is helpful to be smartly presented. While we like to consider the registration as more of an informal chat than an interview, we do consider first impressions – including presentation, attitude and punctuality – as part of our candidate assessment.
Q. How long does it take to get a job after I have registered with Honeycomb Jobs?
We can never guarantee how long the job hunting and interview process will take. This can be dependent on many factors: from the type of role you’re looking for, to your experience, to the time of year! We estimate that most registered candidates will find a role in the first three months of meeting us.
Q. What can Honeycomb Jobs do for me?
We are here to help you with your next career step and it’s important that you feel you can ask us for advice at every stage. We will give you guidance around correctly setting out your CV, as well as prepare you for interviews and recommend realistic salary expectations.
We ask that you also keep us informed of any updates in your employment search so that we can work together as effectively as possible.
Q. Does registering with Honeycomb Jobs cost me anything?
No, candidates are not to required to pay anything.
Q. How often should I stay in touch with my Consultant?
Please feel free to call and update us with your working situation, particularly if your circumstances change or if you would like to send through an updated CV.
On the temporary side, please make sure you regularly let us know your availability via phone or email. Communication with the temporary team is vital and can make a huge difference between getting a temp assignment or not.
Q. How many pages should a CV be?
You've probably been told not to exceed two pages. However, there is no set limit. As a guideline: a one-page CV is normally enough for a graduate or someone with a limited career history. A two-three-page CV is about average length.
Obviously, the length of your CV depends upon your level and your career history - an executive CV will no doubt be much longer than one for a recent graduate.
